Dorena-Hickman Ferry CLOSED
WSIL TV -- The Dorena-Hickman Ferry closed Sunday due to ice coming down the Mississippi River.
Captain Ed Floyd says the ice on the river is thick enough to hamper operation of the ferry.
While Warmer weather helps to thin the ice, it also causes the ice from upstream to break loose and travel with the current.
The ferry will remain closed Sunday. Captain Floyd will evaluate the ice cover Monday morning.
The Dorena-Hickman Ferry connects KY 1354 at Hickman, Kentucky, with Missouri Route A and Route 77 near Dorena, Missouri.
